Washington Humane Society’s Humane Education program is offered, free-of-charge, to local schools service organizations, church groups, summer programs and youth organizations.  The curriculum is comprised of a series of presentations, typically running bi-weekly throughout the school year.  Program objectives are attained through writing prompts, videos and visits from invited guests and special projects.  A condensed program, ranging from three to eight visits, is also available.
